Oki Electric Industry claims the world's thinnest ultra small tri-axis accelerometer module, the ML8950. The 1.4mm thick micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) chip sensor has been integrated with the control IC to create a device in a package. In addition to detecting the tri-axis (X, Y and Z) acceleration (+/-3g), the accelerometer module can also detect inclination and impact shock as well as measure the degree of inclination and vibration. The signal is output in a digital format.
